The United States chemical industry is committed to complying with all federal, state and local regulations, and evaluates products before they reach the marketplace for health, safety and environmental compliance. Aliphatic diisocyanates have been used since the late 1940s and their safety and environmental impact have been well studied. 

They are highly regulated chemicals under the authority of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and other government agencies. Federal authorities have set exposure safety limits for aliphatic diisocyanates emissions to protect both workers in production facilities and surrounding communities. The environment, health and safety benchmarks are based on science and reviewed by government officials with the goal of protecting workers and communities. Companies can face significant civil and criminal penalties for noncompliance.

To learn more about chemical safety policies and regulations, including the modernization of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) with the Lautenberg Chemical Safety Act (LSCA), visit the Chemical Safety section of the ACC website. There you can learn more about chemical safety, including the federal laws that cover the safe use of chemical products. The Consumer and Product Safety and Workplace Safety sections of the ACC website also provide useful information.
